With an approximate fairway width of 40 yards, accuracy will be key for players who want to reach this green in two shots.

The local weather can have a big impact on how you play this hole, depending on which season you are playing it during. In springtime temperatures range from mild highs around 70 degrees Fahrenheit and cool lows around 50 degrees Fahrenheit with average winds blowing between 7-10 mph; while summer brings hot days with highs nearing 90 degrees Fahrenheit and cooler nights near 60 degrees Fahrenheit with wind speeds ranging from 8-12 mph. Fall temperatures usually stay between 55-75 degrees Fahrenheit throughout the day but can dip lower overnight accompanied by winds averaging 9 mph; winter months tend to bring cold days hovering around 45-60 degrees Fahrenheit and frigid nights down below freezing along with gusts up to 15mph or higher. Taking these conditions into account can help golfers decide whether they need more or less club on both their drive and second shot accordingly as altitude, temperature, and wind all affect ball flight distance significantly!

For longer hitters off of the tee looking to get home in two shots, they should consider using either a driver or 3 wood depending upon what direction/angle they need for their approach shot into the green as well as taking into consideration any hazards such as water or sand traps that may come into play if there’s an errant shot off of the tee box. For those who don't hit it quite as far off of the teebox but still want try getting home in two shots should use either a hybrid club (4h) or long iron (3i). If going for three shots then select your longest iron -7i–140 yards –to set yourself up nicely for your third shot onto this large green complex which allows plenty room even if your first two aren’t perfectly struck!

Club Recommendations

For the approach shot, make sure to take into account both the wind direction and speed as well as any potential hazards that may come into play.

Finally, when putting be sure to read the greens carefully and pay attention to subtle breaks in order maximize your chances for birdie!
